We humans belong to the same family

But we are raised under different roofs

Our understanding of each other comes from the amount of time we share

Our personal experiences shape us into the new limbs, branches, and leaves

That flow from the trunk of our family tree

Time brings amnesia

Comparison brings separation

We no longer see the tree

For our vision is too short

I dream of the great tree as a whole

Swaying in rhythm to the cosmic beat

Supporting other limbs

Helping other branches

Sharing with other leaves

Paying respect to the roots

Growing towards the sun

Standing in awe under the heavens


As a family
